Looks like the Republicans are finally finding their spine in the battle over judicial nominees. This story says that Majority Leader Bill Frist plans a 3-phased approach, culminating, if necessary, with the so-called “nuclear option”; changing the rules to require only a simply majority to confirm nominees.

It may just be timed to get better coverage of the tricks Democrats are playing with the judicial nomination process. Either way, I’m glad to see some movement on this.
